Jaws fans from around the world descended upon Martha Vineyard (aka “Amity Island”) for “JAWSFEST: The Tribute” on Aug. 9, 2012.
The annual four-day, fan-driven event took place Aug. 9 to 12, 2012, to celebrate the legacy of Steven Spielberg’s film and how it has impacted the lives of those who came to Amity in 1974. The tribute event also paid homage to the men and women of “Jaws” who have passed, with a special focus on Peter Benchley, Roy Scheider and Robert Shaw.
The event coincides with Universal Studios’ 100th Anniversary celebration and today’s release of “Jaws” on Blu-ray. Featuring an all-new, digitally remastered and fully restored picture, as well as 7.1 surround sound, the “Jaws” Blu-ray includes over four hours of bonus features, including an all-new documentary, “The Shark is Still Working.”
Here is a look at the event:
